Beautiful self catering Portugal villa accommodation on the slopes of Santa Luzia mountain
at Viana do Castelo in North Portugal

Quinta de Valverde Overview
The villas at Quinta de Valverde are overlooking the beautiful town of Viana do Castelo in North Portugal and only minutes from the Atlantic beaches.

They are a superb conversion of former estate workers houses and are situated in the grounds of an 8 hectare estate.

The houses have been converted to very high standards. This is also reflected in the furnishings and fixtures and fittings.

There are five villas all very tastefully decorated and extremely comfortable. Two of them have an interconnecting door.

The villas are grouped together near the main house which is occasionaly used by the owners. A second 4 bedroom house is available for rent but is unsuitable for children or the elderly due to the spiral staircases.

All the villas at Quinta de Valverde have central heating and double glazed windows. The views are over the roofs of Viana do Castelo, the Lima Valley and the ocean beyond. The accommodation is as follows:

Spacious sitting room with open fireplace and a sofa bed suitable for 1 adult or 2 small children.
Open plan in design with fully fitted kitchenette.
Double bedroom with doors opening onto a covered veranda. Bathroom with a full size bath.
Patio doors leading out to a private terrace which has chairs and table for outdoor dining.

Two similar villas are available.

Spacious sitting room with open fireplace and a sofa bed suitable for 1 adult or, 2 small children.
Open plan in design with fully fitted kitchenette with similar equipment to the smaller villa.
One double bedroom and one twin bedroom. Two bathrooms with a full size bath.
Patio doors leading out to a private terrace which has chairs and table for outdoor dining.

A similar villa with 2 twin bedrooms is available.

Spacious sitting room with open fireplace.
Fully fitted kitchen
Three double bedrooms and one twin bedroom. Three bathrooms with a full size bath.
Private garden and barbecue.

Outside, Quinta de Valverde estate climbs from the town to the road leading up to the beauty spot of Santa Luzia Church. A large part of the area is covered by pine and eucalyptus woods.

A feature of the estate are the aviaries in which a collection of about 100 decorative pheasants and some peacocks are kept.

A shaded hillside area has a communal barbecue for the use of the guests.

Near the villas is the former farm kitchen and this area is available for communal dining if all the accommodation is taken by one group. This building also houses the caretaker of the property who is available to assist with any problems.

The swimming pool has views over the ocean. The dimensions are 12 x 6 metres and 1.5 to 2 metres deep.

The town centre of the beautiful old sailing port of Viana do Castelo is about a minutes walk from Quinta de Valverde. In the town there are many restaurants, cafes and shops and all the facilities of a regional capital.

Walking up the hill, guests should visit the Santa Luzia Temple, the more energetic can climb up to the observation platform above the dome (The Zimborium).

Continuing up the hill is the site of the original celtic round houses, the first inhabited area of the town. The population living here began to decline about 2000 years ago with the Roman invasion when the inhabitants were forced to move to the low lying land to become farmers to feed the Roman armies.

On top of the hill is the beautiful Pousada where a beer on the terrace, which has splendid panoramic views, is highly recommended. A road also leads along the top of the mountain with stunning views and wild horses.

There are a number of excellent golf courses in the area, they can be seen by clicking on Northern Portugal golf courses.

We were a family of nine people staying in two cottages and the accommodation was absolutely perfect for all us, young and old. The best part was the verandah with the beautiful view over the valley and out to the ocean - we all loved to relax there at the end of the day. Nicely redone cottages with lots of lovely touches and every convenience. The sound of the peacocks was not too disturbing and added a nice touch. The younger people enjoyed the wireless reception in the common rooms although we didn't spend much time there because the cottages were conveniently located for a walk into the town of Viana do Castelo or drives up the coast or to Braga and Guimaraes. We also took advantage of the infinity pool in the garden when we mostly had to ourselves. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The only drawback was the remote to open the gate onto the property - we had three cars but only two remotes so we had to coordinate our entries and exits!

We enjoyed near perfect accomodation at Santa Luiza. We were looked after extremely well from a distance - we had privacy, peace and a beautiful apartment. All facilities were very good - a well equipped kitchen, lounging and dining outside furniture, good firm bed and excellent daily service by the staff. There were also wonderful views and a beautiful pool. Excellent. Thank you
